Beautiful World

Tell us a little bit about yourself?

Hello, I’m Jade. Mum to two girs ( Kairi 4 and Naminé 2), we live in Ely with their daddy Ryan and our mini poodle Coco.  I’m self employed running a Youth Group and Blogging over at Mummies Waiting

As I’m writing this its the middle of July and I’m currently listening to the Pogues Fairytale of New York because, yes I love Christmas THAT much! I’m also mad about Disney and have a passion for holidays and home educating our children because life is all about adventure!

Where is your favourite place in the UK?

I love Great Yarmouth because it’s my home town and there is so much to do there. In the summer its bustling and in the winter it feels all cosy.

Where would you most like to visit in the UK?

Lapland UK and the Polar Express! I haven’t done either but they both look AMAZING! The plan is to try and do one of them this year.

Where is your favourite place in the world?

This has to be Disney, it’s been almost 10 years since I last stepped foot in Walt Disney World, but having been to Disneyland Paris a lot in the past 5 months, Disney is still winning!

Where would you most like to visit in the world?

I have a few and I honestly can’t decide for different reasons. I want to visit Lapland because I am SURE it will be extremely magical and amazing. I’d love to visit Disneyland California and see Walt’s home and all the magic it has. Lastly I would love to take a trip to see the Northern Lights, something completely different but still totally magical.

Share your favourite travel photo with us and tell us a bit about what it means to you?

The first time Kairi saw the castle at Disneyland Paris. She just sat there and took it all in, it was a quiet early morning and she was amazed. It was such a beautiful moment, I just grabbed my phone, held the shutter button down and hoped that I had got a great shot. I absolutely love it.

Do you prefer a city break or the beach?

I can’t stand the beach, sand is yucky! However I’m, not really city and shopping kind of girl. So a beach holiday where I can just stay somewhere all inclusive will work.

Describe your ideal holiday?

Okay, lets assume its not Disney or Christmas related for a moment! I would love a 4*/5*/5*+ all inclusive, warm pools, hot sun but plenty of shade. A great drink menu and plenty of Al-la-carte. Choritzo on the breakfast menu! A really good animation programme, friendly reps and plenty to do. I’d like the area to have things to do near by and good trips so we can go off site if we wish to. Oh and great music with party dances.

Where is next on your travel list?

We are off to Hopton Holiday Park in October to stay in a static caravan for the weekend and we are looking at Camping in our tent at the Wild Duck in September. The Disney in December!

What’s your top travel tip?

Shop around, be cheeky and always ask for more. If you don’t ask, you don’t get.  When we asked how much it was to get our Eurostar tickets upgraded we were surprised that it was cheaper than stated online; we would never have known that if we hadn’t asked!

Who is the most interesting person you have met while travelling?

When we were younger we would make so many friends. We still have a few friends in America who were fantastic and I would love to see again.

What would be your desert island discs?

Christmas songs! It just HAS to be!

  3. Oh this has reminded me how much I love to travel… we’re yet to brace anything further than a UK break with the kids but I can’t wait to show them the world! #fortheloveofBLOG

  4. Woop Woop for Gt Yarmouth. Gotta love the snails and some hot donuts. I’m a local girl too 😉 Loving the Eurostar tip #fortheloveofBLOG

  5. Disney is so special – my in-laws live in Florida but we’re waiting until our wee one is a bit older (she’s two) to take her, so she can really appreciate it. I went for the first time at 27! #fortheloveofBLOG

  6. 100% agree Disney holidays are the best. Ive not been for 10 years either but currently saving and planning to go with our kids in a year or two. Your description of 5* all inclusive holiday gaff mgs day dreaming, we always make sure it’s all inclusive holidays we go on. Makes life so much more relaxing when you’re there.

  7. Absolutely love that photo of your daughter! That’s a great moment you’ve captured. Very interesting to read all about your blog and travels. X #fortheloveofblog

  8. Hi, you have to love Disney what ever age. I would also love to visit Lapland. I may try the upgrade request next time I use Eurostar, it’s worth a try #fortheloveofBLOG
